I have found a site where they are talking about tuning the kite and the funny thing is that the pictures are from a liquid force havoc from 2007. http://www.progression.me/news/2011/07/ ... le-tuning/
They talk about Front & Back Lines Common Problems and on the second note you can read about: Front lines too short, back lines to long. The characteristics are exactly what I have with my kite even on the picture where you can see that the back tips of the kite are slightly pointing to the outside. On my kite it is even more pronounced. This problem is making me afraid because when I have the kite up I do not feel it and when I pull the bar in the kite is already falling out of the sky and in the middle of the fall it pics back up in the power zone.
I have only flied the kite between 1-3 and 11-9.
So next time I´am going to fly the kite with 8cm shorter back lines, I will begin with pulling the depower strap in and slightly give some more length to the front lines.
I had some help yesterday but I have been told that I had to train on the beach flying the kite but here on the forum and on video´s I have seen that the only thing that you do on the beach in launching the kite, learn to walk with it and then go into the water and learn body drag so you can feel the power of the kite without being hurt. The weight of our body and the drag of the water will act as counter balance. On the beach the only thing we have is our body and a hard landing on the sand.
I have seen many (beginners) doing S´s with the kite wile they are learning on the beach, yesterday there where 2 new students doing it, is that normal? One little mistake and you go flying Xmeters.
Thanks for all the help,
